A little lull...

Not because I haven't been knitting.  Mostly because I have been too busy.  And, I stink at blogging :)

I have a few fun projects on the go right now.  A couple I can't share just yet :)

Here is "Nicolette", a dress/tunic top for my soon to be niece. The pattern is in the works :)

Size shown is a 12months dress which can be worn right up to age 2 or 3 as shown on Scarlett who is 3.5. I really love patterns (and designing patterns!) that cover a range of sizes. It is shown in Noro Silk Garden & features seamless construction, a buttoned opening on the raglan seam, eyelet waistband with ribbon, and a feather & fan lace pattern on the cuffs and hem.

Very easy!

Here is something I have had rolling around my brain for a while. I did an exhaustive Internet/Ravelry search to see if I could find something similar before I spent the time designing this.

"Little Johns" are a part of a series of patterns based around the outdoors and Union Suits. The are longies featuring a "butt flap", seamless construction, I-cord drawstring, doubled, ribbed cuffs. This pattern is going to be available in sizes newborn to size 10. It is in the final stages of testing and layout! It will be available here, on Ravelry and through Knit Picks

I have also included optional striping for the whole traditional "wool work sock" effect....
Knit in Cascade 220, but ill be re-knit in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes; RED!!
Look out for my next pattern; a Union Suit for babies- toddlers!!

Happy Knitting!
